This page describes various policies that apply to this web site / blog.


Comments are welcomed and encouraged on this site, but all comments will be viewed and approved by the moderator before becoming visible.

There are also instances where comments will be edited or deleted, and those posting them may be blocked, as follows:

  • Comments deemed to be spam or possible spam will be deleted. Including a link to relevant content is permitted, but all comments should be clearly relevant to the post topic.
  • Comments including profanity will be deleted.
  • Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive will be deleted.
  • Comments that attack a person individually, or the display of which may expose me (the web site owner) to potential liability for defamatory conduct of any kind, will be deleted.
  • This is a non-commercial site, carrying no advertising, the goal of which is to disseminate information. Comments that promote specific goods or services are not permitted and will be deleted.
  • Comments of a political or religious nature will be deleted, unless they seem to be rational and highly relevant to the topic.

The owner of this blog reserves the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice. Anyone who attempts to post further unsuitable comments will be blocked permanently. This comment policy is subject to change at any time.

Image Ownership & Copyrights

All images shown on this web site are copyright of David O Hodgson (whether or not the image contains an explicit copyright statement), and may not be reproduced anywhere else, in any form, without the advance written permission of David O Hodgson.

Collaboration & Third-Party Content

I have no interest in posting content written or supplied by others, whether paid or not, nor in entering into any collaborative effort in connection with the blog content. You are welcome to link to my posts, but you cannot re-post my content elsewhere.

Please don’t bother to post comments or send emails asking about any such arrangements. If you feel that you have information to offer that is of interest to others, then why not start your own blog?

Email Followers

I realize that, because my interests cover a relatively wide area, your interest level in individual topics may vary.

So that you won’t have to keep checking back for new posts that interest you, you can use the “Follow this Blog” control on the left to receive an automatic email whenever a new post is available.

You can unsubscribe from the email list at any time. You’ll find a link to enable you to do that at the bottom of each email.
